The hostel location is excellent. There are old town and public transportation nearby. Unfortunately, the hostel didn't have any social meeting to meet diverse friends, but it was ok just to have a good sleep.


This hostel (almost hotel, honestly) was simply great. Super clean room with great facilities (flat screen TV and computer). The hostel is located very close to bus station and old town. The guy on the reception desk was very helpful and gave us a lot of tips and advices what to see and eat in Split. Highly recommended, good value for money!


looked OK on the outside but hygiene was really bad inside. Tried to boil water and turned out there were deposited particles inside the boiler, there were nails and cnadies leftover in bed, soup was empty, dusty floor. Not recommended.

Hi. We are pretty sure that this comment was meant for some other property you were staying in. Cleanless is our major priority and there is no way that this could happened. Kind regards


This hostel is beyond excellent, absolutly recommend it, everything was great and staff was UBERLY nice with us. Really clean!


One of the best hostels we've stayed. The room was excellent, very clean and super comfortable. We booked a private room so it was like having your own apartment which it was great. The staff was super friendly and helpful, we would definitely go back. Thank you!


This hostel was in a great location, very close to the port/bus station, as well as the old town. There were also several restaurants in the area that were great and significantly more affordable than the more tourist-frequented spots in the old town. The staff was lovely and very helpful in helping me plan a day trip to Krka, as well as check bus and catamaran schedules. My only complaint would be that there were only two bathrooms (one male, one female), which was very inconvenient at times.


Just awesome, we stayed in a deluxe private apartment with the same price of a 10-person dorm in Vienna. Simply speechless when we arrived in the enormous hostel room. It's just better than a hotel room. We have our own kitchen, bathroom, TV, computer and even a disco ball. Everything was working fine here and it is located right next to a supermarket, so convenient.


Fine hostel. Lovely staff. Excellent location. However the men's shower was almost flooded. Except that it was brilliant.


Amazing hostel! The staff were so kind and helpful, and the facilities are really clean. The bed are really comfortable, and each bed had a reading light and plugin. I loved my stay, and I would recommend this hostel to anybody.


The staff were beyond helpful. My bus was late coming in but the man at the front desk waited past the hours of operation to let me in. Nice one apenilo hostel


. the locker is so big you can hide a human. very very central.very clean hostel. lights and electricity at bedside. the staff is helpful as well. very clean toilet but i say its a bit small.its really small toilet but as clean as it is small. ;) still i'll give i give 10/10 for all.


Great apartman, enough space inside, nice bad, nice bathroom, disco light is great, air conditioning is great, tv, internet all great :-) Bad things: 1. Lack of daylight or windows :-(( 2. lack of shelfs (wardrobe) and 3. lack of hooks for the jackets Hope you can fix the missing things, at least last two. Keep the good work :-)

Loved the disco ball in the three-person apartments ! Otherwise, clean and well-located hostel. The staff was of great help.

It was wonderful stay for me! I recommend this hostel. Thanks to all the managers :-) 비수기라 그런지 대체로 한산해서좋았습니다. 게다가, 도미를 예약했는데 호스텔사정으로 1층룸으로 바꿔줘서 정말 편안하게 시설좋은곳에서 머물수있었습니다. 덕분에 더연장해서 5박을지냈습니다. 도미룸도 깔끔하고 넓은편이었네요. 바로옆에 토미라는 마트가있고 기차역과 바닷가까지 5분이면갑니다. 기차역은 플랫폼을 가로질러서 뒷문으로나오면 숙소와 가깝습니다. 머물렀던 방은 내부에 키친,화장실욕실이 있고 티비,피씨가일체형으로 되어 침대에서편안히 사용했습니다. 실내환기가 조금애매했지만 에어컨사용해서 괜찮았고요. 직원들도 친절하고 리셉션에 주변관광 안내정보도 잘되어있네요. 스플리트가 비교적작은편이라 쉬엄쉬엄다니면서 숙소에서 쾌적하게쉴수잇어 좋았습니다. 추천합니다


This hostel is a mix of dorms ( located in main building) and ensuite rooms. It was very clean and well equipped with modern utensils and fittings.It was very close to the transport- the ferry,train and bus terminals are located in the same area-and the city centre. No complaints then, apart from the rather powerful air freshener in my room!


Location is great, 5 min walk from bus station. Staff is very friendly and helpful. It's not sociable but would be a good choice for a quiet stay. small yet very cozy.


The hostel is overall good. Small but good. There isn't really a lounge so tough to meet people. There are only two bathrooms for the dorms, but they were clean so no complaints. Weirdest thing though: if you come in late without a reservation you will not get a spot. THE STAFF LEAVE BEFORE 11PM! So warning to all! I had to turn away 3 people while staying there and the emergency number that's up is offline. Other than that it was a good stay!


Our private room was great even if it got weirdly humid during the day. Having a computer in our room was a nice surprise, as was the disco ball. The hot water was less than plentiful but the location was great and so were the staff.


Staff were amazing so helpful. No real atmosphere with the setup. Close to the centre and walking distance to everything.


Sometimes, shower wasn't getting hot. However, this hostel was excellent!!
